Many people from EU and UK are wondering if Split, Croatia is open for tourism in July 2020, after the first wave of coronavirus pandemic. On July 20, 2020, I took a walk to check if visitors have arrived to the town of St. Dominus, as Split is usually called.

Visitors of Split in 2020

As I have already written, Croatia is open for tourism in 2020, and there are many visitors who are already enjoying naturals beauties of this Mediterranean town.

There are many airlines from European cities like London and Berlin, to the biggest Croatian cities Zagreb and Split.
It's necessary to weark masks in shops and public transportation, while in the outdoor places masks are optional.

As you can see from the photos, many visitors are enjoying Split Riva and it's charming atmosphere. People feel relaxed while walking the promenade or staying in a coffee bars despite the pandemic. While walking Riva, I could notice French and UK visitors have already arrived in Split. Germans and Austrians have already been here for more than a month.

The most famous beach in Split, Bacvice, is filled out with people. If you don't like staying in crowds in 2020, I would even recommend you to avoid it at all. Instead, visit Marjan beaches Kasjuni and Kastelet, which are more intimate and easier to maintain social distance.

The most famous attraction of Split, Diocletian's Palace, is back to life as well. The number of visitors is reduced up to 50%, and the atmosphere is good. Everyone is enjoying this preserved Roman heritage, of which the Split Peristyle stands out the most.
